Nice informative clip, Rory. Sadly, I had never even heard of the Douglas Boston/Havoc. (He did go on to Lancasters later.)

'Casper the Friendly Ghost' seems not to have been in the public domain until 1945 . . . a 'story' just putting a 'name' to a less than original image!! However this 'artwork' seems remarkably similar - a genie perhaps. Surely possible to track down by analysing RAF Boston Sqdns history etc!
